After a cooler-than-average summer, the Texas heat is back with 100-degree weather forecasted this week.
On Monday, Austin is expected to experience its third triple-digit day of the year with the rest of the week hovering just below or at 100 degrees. Although it will feel even hotter, with the heat index on Monday and Tuesday projected to be 105 and 103 degrees, respectively, according to the National Weather Service.
